- Metabolism, Stress & Adrenal Support - 60 Capsules
- Contains special nutrients that maintain healthy body functions, healthy sugar levels and energy maintenance.
Provides nutrients to help support proper adrenal function and endocrine coordination. Adrenal depletion can be caused by chronic exposure to stress, poor nutrition, a diet depleted of vitamins and minerals but high in sugar, caffeine, and toxins, long-term illness or untreated conditions such as arthritis, lack of sleep, or a depressed immune system.
Contemporary lifestyles and eating habits contribute to the widespread incidence of adrenal depletion with issues ranging from mild to serious. Some of the symptoms and corollary conditions to adrenal depletion are insomnia and/or hypersomnia—a sense that one cannot get enough sleep, vulnerability to colds, aches in joints and throughout the body, general fatigue, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) or Chronic Fatigue and Immune Deficiency Syndrome (CFIDS), difficulty exerting energy, even in small spurts, poor digestion, difficulty deriving energy from food, and mental “fuzziness.”
INDICATIONS MAY INCLUDE:
Stress, fatigue, mood swings, weight gain, depression, adrenal fatigue and exhaustion.
VITAMIN B5 (Pantothenic Acid) 250mg: Vitamin B5 is known as the anti-stress vitamin. Pantothenic acid plays a role in the production of the adrenal hormones and formation of antibodies, aids in vitamin utilization, and helps to convert fats, carbohydrates, and proteins into energy. It is needed to produce vital steroids and cortisone in the adrenal glands and is an essential element of coenzyme A, which is also thought to play a major role in the body's ability to cope with stress and strengthen the immune system.
VITAMIN C (Mg. Ascorbate) 100mg: Vitamin C is an antioxidant that is required for tissue growth and repair and adrenal gland function. Humans, unlike most animals, cannot make Vitamin C in their bodies and can only store it. We store Vitamin C in a system within the adrenals, called the Ascorbate system, and stress can deplete our store of Vitamin C. In January 2008, Baehr and colleagues commented on their research in a letter to the editor of the "American Journal of Clinical Nutrition," involving vitamin C-deprivation leading to impaired adrenal function can be alleviated by vitamin C supplementation due to its antioxidant effects that restore adrenal enzymatic activity to protect the function of the adrenal cortex against reactive oxygen species.
VITAMIN B6 (Pyridoxine) 25mg: Vitamin B6 must be obtained from the diet, because humans cannot synthesize it. It plays a vital role in the function of approximately 100 enzymes that catalyze essential chemical reactions in the body. These vitamins work together to sustain proper chemical reactions and support the adrenals in providing the necessary energy for our lives.
ADRENAL 150 mg: The protein derived from this adrenal gland substance, containing some important adrenal hormones, helps to rebuild and repair the adrenal glands.
PITUITARY 30mg: The protein derived from this pituitary substance, containing some important pituitary hormones, helps to build and repair the adrenal glands, through the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis.
BARBERRY ROOT: A stimulant to the adrenal gland, this herb also tends to increase secretions and excretions thus improving digestion and assimilation. This is done through the activation of the lymphatic system and ductless glands.
BLESSED THISTLE: Also a stimulant to the adrenal gland. Thistle, a known stimulator due to its bitterness, tends to increase gastric and bile secretions. It is also tonifying to the liver and digestive tract.
NOTE: To support reparation of damage to adrenal glands, Adrenal and Pituitary substances interact with Barberry Root and Blessed Thistle to support and rebuild the adrenal glands to regain proper performance.
